{Vendor Love} Bird Dog Bay

Bird Dog Bay Custom Bow Ties for Weddings | Bespoken

While the bride typically does most of the planning and making decisions in the wedding, it's not completely and solely about her :) The groom plays a big part, and we love it when a groom has custom and unique accessories to make himself stand out. Bird Dog Bay, a Chicago-based men's accessories and apparel company, provides a variety of items to help grooms and groomsmen express their own personality and style in the wedding.

Bird Dog Bay creates unique patterns for ties, bow ties, socks, cufflinks, pocket squares, and more. The founder, Steve Mayer, remains the sole illustrator and designer for all of their products...and he still hand draws every single pattern. His dog, Gus, inspired their logo and many of their designs.

You can choose any of their printed or woven silk patterns, or they can work with you to create a customized logo box that would appear on the tail of your tie. You can add your name, initials, wedding date, location, or anything else that will remind you of your wedding day. You can also get matching cufflinks (great groomsmen gift!).

Some of my favorite patterns are their Sheffield Stripe, On Air Stripe, Summer Wind, and Bulldog Bonanza. See more patterns here.

Definitely check them out!! Their items would make great gifts, would look great in photos, and would be perfect keepsakes.
